Sandbox is a great solution for a variety of settings in which users should only be browsing specified sites. These possible settings could be the classroom, kids’ use at home, kiosks, restaurants, retail outlets and more.
Additionally, Sandbox offers the following features:
• Lock configuration settings with a passcode to prevent users from changing settings
• Add bookmarks for approved websites
• Customize the appearance of the user interface to enable or disable features
• Easily configure multiple devices using a property list file
• Automatically return to the preset home page after the device has been idle for a specified amount of time
Home and Classroom – Parents and teachers can ensure students are only going to appropriate websites. This is great for academic settings where safesearch is required.
Work Devices – System administrators for large deployments of devices could ensure that the devices purchased for work use are being used to only interact with approved websites.
Kiosks – System administrators in visitors’ centers at places of business or museums could create a contained environment using Sandbox, meaning users could not visit other apps while using the iPad.
Restaurants – Have patrons order using a Web-accessible menu, but restrict them from freely browsing.
Retail Outlets – Shoppers could view an online catalog of the store’s inventory or online product brochure without having to give open web access to them
